Cakes and scrap :-)

Sorry I haven't been around much lately... I've been so busy!! I've been promoting my side business (cakes) recently and so I"ve been busy cake decorating! Here are the 3 latest cakes I've done.

I resigned from one of my CT's because my style didn't seem to fit hers anymore. But I have joined a new CT (which is awesome!!!!) so this layout was created using the kit "Let's Hear It For The Boys" by Dream Big Designs (http://dreambigdigi.blogspot.com/) There are some freebies on her site!

Since Brandon is sick I've been home the past couple of days and I've been able to catch up on my P365.. so here are weeks 7 & 8.

Can you read any of the journaling??? If not, would you like me to post it?

Those cakes are amazing! I am so impressed. I do good to just put icing on a cake.

Your layouts are great as well. I really like all of them. Where do you find the time to do it all?

I ask that but that is what people ask me too lol. Those cakes just blow my mind so much!

As for the time... well, I just started doing cakes again, so I bake when the kids are awake and then do the decorating after they go to sleep (or somtimes I"ve been guilty of putting a movie in)... as for scrapping... I do that on the weekends when the kids are taking their nap or during the week after the kids go to sleep. Admittedly, my hubby gets neglected at times. I don't fell all that guilty about it because I do pretty much everything around here- so i'm entitled to some "me" time. Wink

I'm very impressed with your cakes. I hope you continue to share each cake picture with us, because it's inspiring. One of these days I'd love to take a cake class. Kayson would love the Thomas cake!

Your P365 layouts capture me because of all the journaling. Love them!

I agree with all PP, those cakes are so amazing!! I am glad to hear the side business is going well. It's so fun to make money doing what you love.

Great P365 pages too, I dont' even need to read the journaling to know what's going on, they're super!

What's up with your new house? You haven't said much lately.

That superman one is exactly how I wanted a cake for Wayne's bday! Needless to say, it didn't turn out as I suck at cakes so I scraped it all off and did blue, red, and yellow swirls all over it. hahaha
Your cakes are amazing!!! I am envious of your talents! Love the scrap pages too!

Carrie-

Oy vay!! This whole house business is driving me crazy! The house that I told you all about over a month ago is still waiting in the wings... we were told that the short sale wouldn't take nearly as long because someone had already gone through the process but they walked away before it was official. WELL... a couple weeks ago I get a phone call.. apparently the listing agent has been leading us all to believe that this was pretty much a done deal. Get this... the people that "walked away" never officially walked away!!! They never signed the paperwork saying they are taking their offer off the table.. and guess what, they are still interested in it!!! So what the listing agent did was put the house back on the market without having this paperwork. It is sooo wrong!! I told my realtor that I'm not backing down from this. Apparently when it's a short sale, the bank only looks at one offer and it goes through a computer system process. Now there are 2 offers, so the listing agent is trying to reach a real person and let them know that our offer is higher. So needless to say, I'm still holding onto a thread a hope, but honestly, I'm not sure what's going to happen. We've started looking at other houses, but we haven't seen any that we've liked - there's something wrong with all of them (either the living room or kitchen is too small, it's in a crappy neighborhood, too far away.... ). We are looking at another house on Saturday though... this whole process is supposed to fun?!?! Umm.. not so much. So this is what's going on with this whole situation, aren't you glad you asked? Lol

How about you?!? Are you having any luck? (sorry if I missed any news)

I took cake decorating classes at AC Moore about 5 years ago. There are some neat videos on YouTube that teach you how to do some things too.. Smile

Love the cakes!!! Wish you were close enough to do our cakes too. Smile And I love the first layout, gonna check out the blog you posted. I can't read the journaling on your 365 layouts (but my eyes are so tired that even if it was big enough, I couldn't read it). I love the way you're doing them, they look awesome!
